n the spring season (April-early June), the peak can see upwards of 15 feet of snow or more! This is our trusty snowplow cutting through the snow above treeline. The Railway constructed this snowplow in the 1970s, in hopes that a more powerful plow would help us stay open year-round. This 500 horse-power, 12-cylinder Cummins diesel engine plow, along with our Section Crew, have definitely served us well throughout the many years and snowstorms!
